Note this pup is 6 weeks now.
What training is there to do at that age? I'd leave it a few more weeks.
To give the pup some comfort when your not with it, you can get some tops for some baby bottles and attach to a hot water bottle, and put some warm water in it.
You could also get a rag and tie it to the wall at a slight height so the pup can bite on that.
You could also get your friend with the other pup and take turns to look after them. It may be good for them to be together for another week or 2.

I forgot to add, training starts the day you get them. Every little thing you do teaches them something whether good or bad so be careful what you are teaching. Every minute you are interacting with your dog is a training session. Make the most of it. Good luck with your girl.

|martemchik||She doesn't know her name yet. Get treats. Say her name, when she looks at you, give her a treat. Do this at very very close range...while she's sitting on your lap or on the couch next to you. She'll figure it out that when you say that word it means her.|

Thanks for your reply. I live in india. Sorry I didn't give the shot, my vet only gave the shot.
My friend also got a GSD from same mother, but while giving the shot he shouted alot. So i want to clear whether its a normal act.
I will buy a crate soon. While i calling her name she is not responding to it I also want to know when to start training her.

The shot thing is fine...dogs have an extremely high tolerance for pain and a very thick skin (literally) so they don't necessarily feel pricks like that...or at least to the point where they need to squeak.
Where are you located that you have to give your dog its shots? Just wondering why you don't go to a vet for that?
The separation thing...will be very difficult to get over. She's young, she needs protection, she understands that you're her only protection. For the next 3 weeks she should be with her mom and siblings but due to circumstances she isn't so she might have issues with separation. She might just grow out of it, or she might not. I suggest getting a crate and crating her. Then at least she won't be destructive. She'll learn that her crate is a safe place and she'll learn to enjoy it. It might make her calmer when you leave.

Please help me guys
Hey Hi This is my 1st post in this forum. I have gone through many threads from this forum and so would like to clarify my doubts with you. Last week i bought a GSD( 5 weeks old) since her mother died. Initially she was so feared after reading your forum I spend my last entire week with her, now she is feeling better.I really agree that she is so smart within 4 days she know where to poo and pee ( sometimes she pee in same place ) I am first time dog owner, For my family i bought her. Last week full night she was shouting, i know she need some time to adjust. but yesterday she gad a good sleep and me too.
Here I have 2 doubts,
-yesterday i put my first puppy vaccination, while injecting she not even raise a single sound she was so quite. is that normal??
- And she always want me or my mom near by her. only for 5mins she can be left alone, after dat she started shouting. Now i have got a doubt that will i be able to train her to left alone or I always want to be with her
Now she is 42 days old. Please tell me how to train her to leave alone in home.
Note: Because of her i feel I am not able to spend my time with my family. Entire last week i was with her. Feeling stressed.
i know you guys have more experience in GSD. Please help me out in this.
